Chunky Knit Cuddle Blanket

Chunky Knit Cuddle Blanket

Chunky Knit Cuddle Blanket

Chunky, hand knit blankets are all the rage. They’re usually made with Merino wool yarn that is so thick and fluffy, it almost looks like puffy strands of cloud! They are beautiful and cozy, but not washable. So this week, we’re making our own version out of cuddle fabric!

Chunky Knit Cuddle Blanket

Cuddle is as soft as it gets, and it is so easy to care for. You can toss it in the washing machine, and it comes out as good as new! This blanket is made out of 4-inch strips of cuddle, so it’s a great use for any scraps you may have lying about.

I Heart Quilting Embroidery Project

I Heart Quilting Embroidery Project

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for all you quilting and embroidery fans out there! February is National Embroidery Month and March is National Quilt Month, so this week we are combining the best of both worlds for an “I Heart Quilting” embroidery project!

Around here, we certainly love our sewing machines, but sometimes you just can’t beat a little hand sewing, and this embroidery project is just the ticket! And, because we really love quilting, we created a few different designs that you can download HERE.

Card Trick Quilt Tutorial

Card Trick Quilt Tutorial

Watch and learn with Jenny as she creates the Card Trick

It’s just amazing. A magician can perform a trick RIGHT in front of my eyes, and I still can’t figure out how it is done! I stare without blinking, watch every move, and somehow never catch a glimpse of the card up his sleeve or the coin hidden in his left palm. My brain knows it’s an illusion, but all I can see is pure magic.

 

Learn along with Jenny as she shows you a simple way to make the Card Trick Quilt.

This week Jenny is stitching up her version of the Card Trick quilt. This classic block has the illusion of being difficult, but we know better! Jenny has a few tricks of her own to make this project as easy as “abracadabra!” Click HERE to watch the tutorial!

This week Jenny is combining a stack of half-square triangles with a bit of crumb quilting to create a cool, modern Trail Blaze Quilt.  (What’s that? Crumb quilting? Don’t worry, it’s just a mish-mash of tiny scraps. Fun to make and easy to use!) Click HERE to learn all about these fun techniques in this week’s new tutorial!
